Song of the Day - November 9, 2005

Normally, I like to keep my songs of the day relatively current. However, today is different and I thought a trip back in time would be appropriate for the unique and ground breaking music of Faust. One of the original founders of Krautrock, Faust has become a legendary band. The song "It's A Rainy Day, Sunshine Girl," is a classic from the early 70's and a song that is truly lodged in my cerebellum. The constant tom tom beat of the drums is hypnotic. When the beat is combined with the chanting of "It's a rainy day, sunshine girl," the effect is almost zen like. Synthesizer sounds swirl amongst the steady beats, combined with a wailing harmonica and an unconventional saxophone chorus to create a true masterpiece of minimalist rock. Click here to listen.
